King Michael continues to be under permanent medical supervision and is following the regular treatment prescribed in recent months, the Royal Family announces, pointing out that Princess Maria will be by his side in Switzerland, around the time of his birthday.
“Princess Maria is in Switzerland, to be alongside King Michael, around the time of His Majesty’s birthday. Her Royal Highness is spending several days at her father’s private residence. Her Majesty continues to be under the medical doctors’ permanent supervision, and is following the regular treatment of recent months,” the Royal Family announced on Sunday.
On Wednesday, October 25, when His Majesty turns 96, the Royal Family will host in Bucharest two important events dedicated to King Michael.
“The Custodian of the Crown will confer awards, on behalf of His Majesty, to 14 personalities from Romania and from Europe, within the Royal Palace’s Throne Room. In the evening, Crown Princess Margareta, Prince Radu and Princess Maria will take part in the charity concert organised by the Princess Margareta of Romania Foundation, at the Romanian Athenaeum. The concert is on its tenth edition and is organised to collect funds for the Young Talents annual program,” the Royal Family points out.
Two months ago, the Royal Family announced that King Michael’s health is fragile but balanced and he is in a good state of mind.
Also back then, it informed that King Michael “continues to be under the careful daily supervision of medical doctors, of a medical staff with various specialisations, as well as in the presence of devoted members of His Majesty House’s personnel, transferred to Switzerland.” Likewise, two Orthodox Christian nuns, sent by the Romanian Orthodox Church, continue to be posted every day at the private residence.
King Michael I retired from public life in March last year, when the Royal Family announced he was diagnosed with metastatic epidermoid carcinoma and chronic leukaemia and underwent surgery at a clinic in Lausanne.
